Farm Happenings for May 19, 2020

Posted on May 15th, 2020 by Kimberly Decker

This week on the farm we've had more rain than is helpful...  we've had something like four inches of rain, and there's more on the way.  This means that it's been a bit difficult to get things done in the field, like plant the next tomatoes, seed radishes, or harvest kale.  This sort of weather highlights why we use so much covered space on the farm; some of our first seasons as market farmers, thirteen years ago, started with long wet spells that kept us out of the fields, and delayed harvest.  Check out this video for a brief explanation of the three big reasons we grow more than a quarter of our produce under cover, even in the summer. 


Also, remember that this week is the first week of meat shares.  We are not able to deliver meat shares, as we do not have a way to keep the meat frozen and safe on our delivery routes, and so you do need to come to the farm to pick up your meat share. If you would like to also pick up your produce while you are at the farm, please let us know by email asap, so we can hold your share instead of send it out to be delivered. 

We will continue to manage pickup on the farm as a drive through, as we play it safe with the covid concerns; thank you for your flexibility.  

Also, inevitably, some things get messed up during the first few weeks of CSA, and so please let us know if anything doesn't seem right with your share, either by email or text to, or  Curtis at 4178390847.

We are excited about this season, we are sold out, and demand for local food has not been this high in 70 years; we are glad to have you as members, and I hope you're enjoying your fresh produce.
